Poppies are so easy to grow, fat green buds open to reveal crumpled petals which resemble fine tissue paper once opened. This is a lovely mix of both soft and strong colours, bi-colours and picotees.

Shirley poppies are superb in cottage gardens and other informal settings and you can expect a flurry of activity from the bee population too!

How to Guide

Sowing Outdoors

Rake soil to provide a firm, even surface. Sow seeds thinly in a pre-watered soil, lightly covering them with a little more soil. Sowings made in semi circular lines create a natural "drift" effect. Keep moist until seedlings appear and as required in dry spells.

Potting on/Thining Out

When large enough to handle, thin seedlings to allow their development and to prevent overcrowding.
